I'm looking to get my first bike. It'll be an everyday bike for urban/commuter/road purposes, and I've narrowed it down to a few bikes. Which is a better buy? I'm open to other suggestions.

1) 2016 Cannonade Quick 1 Disc
- $1,300.00
- new from dealer

2) 2015 Giant TCX SLR 2
- $1,100.00 + shipping
- used
- includes road tires, aero bars, rear rack, fenders, Candy 2 pedals

3) 2016 Specialized Sirrus Comp Disc
- $1,200.00

If you are going to be riding long miles, like over 10/trip, or extended rides like 30 miles. I would recommend getting a bike with road bars, not those flat bars.

Remember, you will want to ride more if you get hooked.

Choice 2 is a totally different type of bike than choice 1 and 3. You need to decide what type of bike you want. If you do a lot of urban commuting, flat bars and a more upright position are often a better choice than road bars.

The most important thing is NOT which bike is better, but which bike shop is better. The most important thing is getting a good fit. A good bike shop will emphasize fit over all else and will put you and your new bike on a trainer, watch you pedal and make adjustments to dial in your fit just right.
